Poll: 68% of Surveyed Russians Do Not Want To Restore Monarchy

  March 25, 2017 at 12:21 am by

A telephone poll conducted earlier in March by the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion has shown that 68% of those surveyed do not want to restore the monarchy in Russia.

22% said they were not against a monarchy, but they did not have a solid idea of who would best for the position of Tsar – 13% preferred someone from the political or public sphere, while only 6% preferred a Romanov descendant.

When the respondents were asked what style of government was “most suitable for the Russian state” – republican or monarchy – an overwhelming 82% answered republican. Support for a monarchy was highest in the 45-59 year old age group (31%), and came from more respondents located in Moscow and St Petersburg (19%) than regional areas.

1,600 respondents were surveyed. Tsardom in Russia was abolished 100 years ago.
